Yesterday marked the annual May Day Parade in Minneapolis, featuring the oversized puppes and masks of Heart of the Beast Theater. The theme for this year's parade was "uproar" in honor of the year of the Tiger. HOBT dubbed it "a call to be fully present to the uncertainties of these shifting times." Having the tiger around should help; according to Chinese tradition the animal represents courage and bravery, and is a sign said to keep away fire, thieves and ghosts.
